Kush Queens Pride Collection

Pride Month is about so much more than mega parades. It's about fighting for the rights of the LGTBQ+ community and bringing light to the many injustices it's encountered in its fight for civil rights.

So as June approaches, many brands are announcing how they'll be doing their part in joining the fight. Kush Queens, a CBD-based skin and bath brand, is one of them. It's created a collection specifically dedicated to trans rights and is recognizing the exact people who fought for the legalization of cannabis in the first place.

It's official, Pride Month is almost here. 

We're getting our rainbows ready and preparing to celebrate and uplift the LGBTQ+ community with an array of parades, parties, and beyond. Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson are certainly ready — they were spotted carrying a kinky AF sex bench into one of their apartments yesterday and we frankly can't get enough of the photos.

And with the recent murders of several trans women, they're being recognized in particular. 

"Hey happy trans day of visibility. Do something sweet for a trans person today. Buy someone lunch. Take them to dinner. Don’t know any trans folks? Well, maybe try to live a more inclusive life, but also donate to a good trans charity. I recommend TLDEF or Trans Life Line," someone said in celebration of the recent Trans Day of Visibility.

One organization that's played a huge role in that is the Trans Lifeline.

The org "dedicated to improving the quality of trans lives by responding to the critical needs of our community with direct service, material support, advocacy, and education" is leading the pack this year, and popular CBD brand Kush Queen is following suit. 

The brand, which has long supported the fight of marginalized communities, is celebrating Pride this year in a special way. 

Kush Queen is encouraging everyone to bring awareness to the injustices faced by the trans community with an exciting new collection that's donating 20% of its proceeds to the Trans Lifeline.

It's a little bit of old mixed with a little bit of new. 

Kush Queen has included some of its original favorites, such as its body-safe lubricant, and has created new products to celebrate the monthlong occasion. Every product will be sold separately or together for a full collection. 

But the most exciting addition is the new rainbow bath bomb. 

Aside from simply making your tub look like a sea of vibrant colors, the many essential oils it's packed with are made to help with anxiety and take relaxation to new heights. See the entire collection below, or donate directly to the Trans Lifeline here.

A new 1,000 mg dose from Kush Queen's favorite line of hypoallergenic CBD products provides 1,000 mg of high-quality, full-spectrum hemp CBD.

Ignite CBD Lube ($50, Kush Queen)

Kush Queen was horrified to discover most cannabis lubes were coconut-oil based. Coconut oil is not and has never been acceptable as a personal lubricant. It alters the body’s pH, will promote the growth of yeast, and is not latex compatible. That's why it has created Ignite, a paraben-free, petrochemical-free, latex-compatible, non-staining lubricant.

CBD Bath Bomb ($13, Kush Queen)

The Pride bath bomb is handmade with 25 mg of hemp-derived CBD. Exploding with lavender, chamomile, and frankincense, this bath bomb's key ingredients work together for a bath of deep relaxation.

The Pride Collection ($100, Kush Queen)

Celebrating the shared history of cannabis progress, and the LGBTQ+ communities, Kush Queen presents its limited-edition 2019 Pride Collection. The access to cannabis would not exist without the incredible men and women who fought for Proposition 215. Because of them, California adopted its first medical cannabis legislation in 1996, opening the doors for AIDS patients and many others to gain access to plant medicine.
